duo, asking the tough questions
The real question though is does she love you?
Would "Elsker du kona si?" also be allowed here?
If the subject was 'hun', that would be correct (Elsker hun kona si), but since the subject is 'du', you'll have to use 'di', as these have to agree. Your sentence is not grammatically correct.
why "konen di" is not accepted also?
'di' is feminine, 'konen' is masculine; these have to match. So you can either say 'konen din' or 'kona di', but you cannot say 'kona din' or 'konen di'.
yeah that makes sense now . i like your answers !
Tusen takk !
Why can't I use 'elsker du di kona?'
Di kone works. When you place the noun after the possessive, the noun isn't definite, e.g., min hund, hunden min.
Ahhh, tusen takk
Where would be the mistake in "Elsker dere deres koner?". Tusen takk.
Since “koner” is plural, I think this would mean “Do you love your wives?” (“You” also in the plural)
Why is it kona di instead of kona ditt?
'Ditt' is used with neuter nouns, but 'kone' is feminine. fveldig explains how you can use feminine or masculine higher up.
